As I have shared more of my work with pet portraits, I have had more friends and family reach out with interest.
His owner, Sara, messaged me to create a portrait of her dog, Dart, for her husband's birthday. If there is one thing I gathered from the reference photos she sent along, it is that Dart's most striking feature is his ears! I really wanted to emphasize his dark spots, and we both agreed a patterned background would make the portrait even more fun. Overall, I had fun creating this one and am so glad the couple loved it!
This pet portrait was drawn digitally using ProCreate on an iPad Pro. See the photo below for the final portrait!
